As a youngling, Belsed-Qan left his family and was taken to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant where he would learn the ways of the Force.

Around the time of the Separatist Crisis, a number of conflicts grew across the galaxy. The Separatists gained a considerable amount of followers, and soon became a legitimate threat to the Republic. While the Separatist activity continued to increase, pirates from the Atrivis Sector had become a serious menace to Republic spice and grain convoys in the sector. When the pirates raided the sector, the Jedi High Council assigned Belsed-Qan to lead a group of Jedi and diplomats to negotiate with the pirates.

Since the Jedi were dealing with pirates, Master Idan decided to take precaution brought along a team of Jedi piloting the recently designed Jedi Delta-7 interceptors as backup.
When the team arrived near the planet Vuchelle, the Pirates of Iridium fired on the Jedi, making clear what their intentions were, and the sector was the site of a space battle. The pirates proved formidable adversaries, crippling the Monitor III, and unfortunately taking the lives of a number of Jedi. During the battle, Master Idan piloted his Delta-7 interceptor and made his attempt to end the battle before the pirates escalated the assault.
